This is a photographic negative of a base runner caught in a pickle between third base and home plate. An Oak player just tagged the runner out and is now looking toward second base. The runner is leaning over as his is running toward home plate. The Oaks catcher is trailing the two players. The umpire, who is closet to the cameraman and his back turned is watching the play. The photo was taken from the third base side of home plate and toward the third base line. Left field can be seen here.
